CNN’s Don Lemon faces scrutiny over ‘amazing’ 2007 interview with Louis Farrakhan

CNN’s Don Lemon has a big problem on his hands.

Fox News released a bombshell report Saturday recalling that Lemon once had the “honor” and “pleasure” of conducting what he described as an “amazing” interview with controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

According to Fox, Farrakhan once chanted “death to America” and has even called for a separate state for Black Americans. For such radical beliefs, he has been permanently banned by Facebook.

The Nation of Islam leader is in the news again after a man who described himself as a follower of Farrakhan carried out an attack on U.S. Capitol Police that left one officer dead, Fox noted.

“It was amazing”

The controversial religious leader’s interview with Lemon took place in 2007.

“Thank you again for doing this,” the CNN host said, according to Fox. “It’s an honor and a pleasure to meet you.”

Afterward, Lemon gushed about the experience.

“Oh, it was amazing because he doesn’t let anyone in his home,” he reportedly said. “I mean, it’s rare. And I think — as far as I know, maybe one or two reporters got a chance to do this. We were supposed to do it earlier, but he was so sick that we had to cancel several times. His doctors said he couldn’t do it. But to go into his home, we interviewed his wife. Never happened.”

Lemon added: “We also interviewed his daughter. That never happens. Nine children. So it was amazing.”

Flags at half-mast

As Fox notes, Lemon and several top Democrats who’ve had ties to Farrakhan may soon be facing even more scrutiny as more information is uncovered about the Friday attack at the Capitol. The suspect, 25-year-old Noah Green, described himself as a “follower of Farrakhan” on Facebook, the New York Post reported.

Green rammed a car into a security barrier Friday, killing one Capitol Police officer and severely injuring another in the process. He was shot dead by law enforcement after he got out of the vehicle wielding a knife.

“We know what a difficult time this has been for the Capitol, everyone who works there, and those who protect it,” President Joe Biden said in a statement after the attack that, notably, didn’t mention Farrakhan, according to Breitbart. “As we mourn the loss of yet another courageous Capitol Police officer, I have ordered that the White House flags be lowered to half-mast.”

  1. Lemon is a closet anti-white, anti-Jewish, anti-Asian racist. He hides behind a smile and a lot of anti-white, anti-Jewish propaganda.

    1. Lemon and Cuomo are two hypocrites clowns!! What goes around comes around! There days of fun and games will come crashing down.

  2. Biden is a fool and he needs to be removed. Harris needs to be impeached for inciting and aiding and abetting criminals. Pelosi needs to be expelled for not following her oath of office – to uphold and protect the constitution. States need to make this happen as our federal government and it’s branches are corrupt. RED STATES RISING!

    1. Biden needs to be impeached himself! I agree that the Democrats are trying their best to take over EVERYTHING! I pray that they don’t make it by running into a wall of some sort. I look forward to seeing them make a fool of themselves!

  4. He really doesn’t care if he is fired, it will give him more time enjoying what he likes to do, blowing.

  5. Lemon is nothing more than a hate filled, insecure, left wing Marxists. His race baiting has no place in our free society.

  6. Lemon will skate away. It is very sadly fashionable to be anti-white and pro-black and pro-minority. Of course Lemon is a very biased person who wants to “fan the flames of hate”.

    American is NOT racist and minorities have the same rights as everyone else. In fact it is easier for a “qualified minority” to get hired than a “qualifies white”. Americans should be pround to be “American’s”. Trying to spread “hate” is simply a disgusting tool to “make news and create a bigger divide”. A good person accepts another person based on how they act and treat others.

  7. Joe Biden is a big backer of Farrakhaw. Biden really needs to be impeached totally out of our government. Biden always lies about everything. When are the American people going to wake up and open their eyes and see what Biden is doing to our country.

    1. I agree whole-heartedly that Biden is a liar. He frequently says one thing, then turns around & does another. What kind of President does a person like that make? Not a good one is what I say!

  8. Biden was a supporter of the KKK that is now antifa the militant groups for the Democrats are antifa and BLM that are black panthers Don Lemon will fit right in throw him out of news no one wants to here his crap he’s an idiot and he’s not American he’s communist

  9. Unless you are an african american, you have no place of standing in this country according to Don Lemon. He is an anti-white black man, with an agenda to mislead the American people. Hopefully if the Republican party takes back the House and Senate in 2022, CNN will be put in check by the FCC for misleading the public.
